Good Morning, Morristown Families! A few announcements on this rainy Friday: 1. Yearbooks have arrived! For those who pre-ordered, we will be sending them home with students today. We do have a few in the office that may be purchased for $17.00. If you are writing a check, please make it out to MES. 2. ILEARN testing begins for grades 3rd-5th next week. Teachers will be communicating the schedule with you on days your child's grade level is testing. Our hope is to have good attendance during testing in order to avoid make-up sessions. 3. 1st and 4th grade students will have hearing screenings on Tuesday. Have a great weekend! :)

Please see a message from Mr. Thrasher and Miss DeVries: Hello! With the spring semester going by so fast, Mr. Thrasher and I wanted to reach out with a few details explaining our elementary music program coming up. The program is centered around Drew Daywalt’s children's book, “The Day the Crayons Quit.” In the book, the main character Duncan opens his crayon box one day to find that each of his crayons has written him an individual letter airing their grievances regarding his usage of that particular crayon. At the end of the book, Duncan uses all the crayons to create a picture that highlights all of them. We have chosen two crayon colors for each grade level, and corresponding songs to sing/perform for each one. From each grade level, we will have two student speakers who will read either of the colors before they perform their song. For kindergarten and first grade, we will have a teacher from each class read. We would like to have students dress in a t-shirt/sweatshirt/top in a corresponding color for their grade level, one color per class. This does not have to be a specific shade of any of the colors and just needs to be the main color of the shirt. The crayon and shirt that go with each grade level are as follows: Kindergarten: Red (Ledford) and green (Morris) First Grade: Orange (Metcalf) and gray (Schmidt) Second Grade: Pink (Bland) and white (Kuhn) Third Grade: Peach (Tush) and blue (Songer) Fourth Grade: Beige (Godar) and purple (Reighley) Fifth Grade: Yellow (Collier) and black (Rush) Everyone: Rainbow It will take place on April 3rd, at 7:00 PM in the main gym at MHS. Students should arrive at 6:30 PM. Hopefully, with time and preparation, this will create a memorable and fun experience that your students will be excited to perform! Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you!
